Hidden Benefits of the HCG Diet

IStock 1061834314 1 300x300Dr. Lombardo is excited about helping patients look and feel their best. At this time of the  gradual re-opening of society-at-large, we field many calls asking about the hCG diet. At our Rancho Mirage office, patients receive the personal assistance they need to drop stubborn weight quickly, methodically, and safely. The primary draw of the hCG diet is that it gets results faster than most other programs. Here, we point out a few benefits that you might miss in the excitement of attaining a weight-loss goal. 

Reversing Metabolic Syndrome

Metabolic syndrome is a group of conditions that increase a person’s risk of diabetes, stroke, heart disease, and other potentially serious health problems. A person is said to have metabolic syndrome if they have three or more of the following:

  • High blood glucose (sugar)
  • Low levels of HDL (“good”) cholesterol in the blood
  • High levels of triglycerides in the blood
  • Large waist circumference or “apple-shaped” body
  • High blood pressure

Insulin resistance and weight are two primary factors in the development of metabolic syndrome. The hCG diet can help lower triglycerides, lower blood pressure, reduce waist circumference, and more, all within a relatively short time. 

Improving Heart Health

The weight loss that occurs on the hCG diet involves the fatty deposits, particularly in the midsection. According to studies, weight loss of 5 to 10% of one’s body fat results in a significant reduction in the risk of heart attack. The dietary habits that are instilled during the hCG diet can also lower the LDL levels that are associated with cardiovascular disease. 

Decreasing Belly Fat

Much of the stubborn fat that we hold on the body is localized in the midsection. This is the visceral and adipose fat that changes our shape, makes us look and feel bloated, and also that makes us more susceptible to heart disease and other chronic illnesses. The hCG diet has the ability to quickly eliminate the abdominal fat that causes so much distress. 

Maintaining the healthy eating habits that were developed during the active phase of weight loss, patients can enjoy lasting improvements in all areas of health and wellness. Get started  now to jump-start a beautiful summer. Call (760) 610-8990 to schedule your weight loss consultation.
